Son-Ji is a ranking member of the guardian clan who watch over the Bridge at the Edge of the World. Both her brothers chose to leave the territory and seek their fortune on the other side of The Wonder Woods. Only Son-Ji inherited the Guardian’s Gift.
Submitted for the topic “Edge” at Illustration Friday. I intend to actually draw the bridge, but it won’t be in time for this topic! (Perhaps if there’s a “bridge” topic. I should submit that. Hmm…)
Here’s one more art card I did recently, for the “Kings and Queens” swap at illustratedatcs.com. I really like the color and style of this one, though the crown is not sitting quite properly in her hair/on her head. Queen Hana is Maiden Number 55 (and I am up to 60)!
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope we all have a wonderful year with Illustration Friday and whatever other projects we’ve got hidden up our magic little sleeves. :)
What an attitude! I love the color combinations, and the way you post how your illustrations come together.
Wonderful character again! Love all the details and color! Wish you a wonderful 2013!
That’s one tuff looking cat. Glad I won’t be going to the edge of the world anytime soon.
All the best to you in 2013, Cindy!
fantastic! i love the character, both, the cat and the woman!!!
This would look nice on a big wall from floor to ceiling!!
Awesome expressions on these characters.
This cat reminds me of one of the cats that I feed everyday. All attitude and nerve…
Great work, Cindy, as always.
Nice queen and kitty. The sketches are great!
Cindy….strange……I seemed to have been dropped from your email list. I did not see your last 2 posts…..should I resubscribe?
Oh dear! I will look into it (though that hasn’t helped much in the past!). It seems some people get emails and some don’t. I should probably consider using a new widget, but I’m afraid of losing more people. Please feel free to re-subscribe as many times and as often as you like. Haha. So sorry for the trouble!
Thank you so much for your visit! Wonderful illustrations!
I’m not sure I want to run afoul of Son-Ji. she looks pretty fierce.
What a nice color palet! The yellow is so tigerlike. The cat looks strict but just. Being a guardian she has to make a fierce impression, but perhaps in her free time, she likes to be petted.
Oooo…I LOVE Son-Ji! So elegant!!
Beautiful :) I love all of your intricate detail work and the vivid colours.
Now that’s a kitty with a purpose! Such a wonderful expression on such a regal cat.
Cindy, I maintain that you need to put all your wonderful and wacky creatures and stories in a book! You have the most wonderful imagination:-) Love it!
I love how you did Queen Hana – everything is so elegant.
